Masso - Vetric post processor

MASSO - Vetric PP A-axis

I've just a created rounding image in VCarve Pro 10.5. On saving a toolpath .nc file
using Masso ATC Arcs (mm). I find there is no mention of a 'A' axis anywhere
in the toolpath file produced (see below).
Where am I going wrong.

As they say on the British 'Fast Show' - ' I'll get my coat then'.

ps. I found the answer to my question on another forum.
